Get prepared for another steaming party as the Retreat crew take over Loftus Hall for an evening which promises to reach every corner of the Dance Music panel! It’s a special one indeed: not only do we celebrate the release of Retreat n°12 from Iron Curtis but we also bring a special guest for his first ever Berlin performance: Mr. Beatnick!
This talented DJ and producer has been navigating the undercurrents of the London scene for years, spinning Hip-Hop, Broken Beat, Disco and House while avidly collecting rare Jazz and obscure records. A Hip-Hop producer at heart, Mr. Beatnick broke through with the amazing « Synthetes » EP on Don’t Be Afraid, a daring House record which ended up on essential compilations from the likes of Scuba, Gilles Peterson or Paul Woolford. With his latest release, the superb « Sun Goddess » also picking up momentum, we can bet that Mr. Beatnick will be one of the hotly tipped artists in 2013!
Also on the line-up tonight is the great Iron Curtis with a wicked new live set! It’s been a busy year for the Iron Man, but after an accomplished debut Album on Mirau and killer Acid-drenched tracks as one half of Achterbahn D’Amour, Nuremberg’s finest is finally back in the Retreat camp for a brand new EP. « Glazing » is a fantastic 4-tracker which sees Iron Curtis breaking new ground while staying true to his inimitable style. We really can’t wait to hear those new tunes live!
Finally, making sure that the party starts and ends on a good note, the Retreat heroes Session Victim and Quarion will come up with a quality selection of House, Techno, Nu Disco or whatever the hell they feel like playing!
So come down to Neukölln’s number one spot and party with us as we close the 2012 chapter with a blast!
